    Globe in Fairfield. My 2nd time with them. The facilities leave a lot to be desired in comparison with Catena, but they've beaten the pants off Catena on pricing twice now.

    It seems everybody is coming in significantly under invoice on this car on their leases. Is that correct?

    What is the MSRP and August incentives for the 300 C Benz
  • lornajlornaj Posts: 6
    I have 8 months to decide on my next car, I would like to know what leases are available for the CLK 350 cabriolet. I am located in So. California (inland).

    What MF should I be expecting?

    Thanks for your help.
  • I think the CLK is being discontinued.. If you are shopping for 8 months from now, you'll have to look at an E-Class convertible...

  • first time to a dealer in a while held my old mercedes for over 6 years. want a c300 premium 1 package. deal was for 499 a month with 3000 down. no way i didn't even ask him for the prices he was basing it on i just got up and left and he came a running on after me.
  • got the same deal and i just left and he ran after me too. Mine was at prestige. did not ask for numbers nothing just asked for premium one he came back at 499 and 3200 down. first i smiled then i just got up. what was he basing this on a 50K car.

    Hey coach16. You can look up the MSRP, and perhaps more importantly the dealer invoice price, of the exact C-Class that you are interested in over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of

    Mercedes-Benz is not currently providing any cash incentives on the 2009 C300, but it does have 0.9% to 1.9% financing or a special lease program available on it this month.

  • radioative2006,

    Your money factor is .0002?? That is less than one percent, .48% to be exact. Are you sure it's .0002 and not .0020?
    I am looking into leasing a MB and was wondering if that is the actual MF that MB is offering.

    Do you know what the August MF is?

    Thanks a lot!!!

  • I want to do this right and pay the right price so i have read and learned a lot here. Here is the best offer i got.

    Term=39 months
    Base Payment=440.89
    Miles Per Year= 15,000
    Disposition Fee= 595.00 (is this a neccessary fee)

    1st month=440.48
    security deposit=0
    Aquisition fee= 1,095.00 (IS THIS FEE RIGHT? SEEMS HIGH!)
    Fees and Ins.- 305.00
    Upfront taxes= 1361.37
    cap reduction=0
    total out of pocket=3202.26

    PLEASE A LITTLE HELP. I am trying to learn. I think this is a good deal but not 100% sure. What can i do to make it better?

    Car_man, I'm wondering why Edmunds invoice price is about $600 lower than what two dealers quoted me? Does their invoice price include some advertizing fee, etc.? Can I negotiate this extra $600 somehow? Anyway, based on Edmunds, got a quote for $2,000 under invoice (and based on dealer's invoice - $2,600 under invoice):
    2009 C300 Sport/Auto/P1/iPod/Wood. Black/Black.
    39 month/10K miles
    MSRP: $38,070
    Sale price: $33,500
    Residual: 54%
    MF: .00075
    $399/month incl. sales tax (0 cap cost reduction, $795 acc fee + $399 first month + registration due at signing)
    What do you think?

    The disposition fee is what MBZ charges. Standard. No way around it unless you can negotiate it away. Maybe if you lease another from them at the end, but do it up front.

    The acq fee seems quite high. the dealer can jack this up to make extra profit. Call a couple other dealers to talk leases and ask them. If it's a mercedes financial lease they have a floor amount, but dealers can go above that.

    You need to know what the selling price is of the car. That's called the "capitalized cost" and is a crucial number in a lease calculation.

    Also, the dealer can increase the "money factor" (what the interest rate is called in a lease) to make extra dough over the term of the lease. Make sure the dealer is using the same money factor that MBZ Financial is giving him.

    The residual value is set by MBZ for length of lease and mileage and the dealer cannot mess with that.
  • 40,800 MSRP got it for 34,155 cut acqu. cost to 795 thanks he was overcharging me like usual. ended up paying 2500 down 430 a month 39 months 15k a year.
